Portland Meadows History

Built by William P. Kyne, who also built Bay Meadows Racetrack in San Mateo, California, the facility opened on September 14, 1946. Portland Meadows made history as the first thoroughbred track in the nation to offer night time racing. In 1970, a fire destroyed the grandstand, it is rebuilt and the track reopens a year later. In 2009, Portland Meadows began Wednesday racing with the first ever Portland Meadows vs. Golden Gate Fields Jockey Challenge. In 2012, Portland Meadows started the first ever Summer Meet at the track.
